Loath as I am to admit it, Bay's first TMNT movie had about five minutes of good bits, hopelessly lost in two hours of crap bits. An hour and a half of which was wasted on the obligatory, drawn out origin story that ruins every first movie of any adaptation (often also ruining any chance of a second movie in the process). How long does it take to show/tell the origins of teenage mutant ninja turtles? All you need to know is in the name already. Anywhoo, in between the hour and a half of pointless introduction and the ten minutes where Bay let the movie trail off because he didn't know how to make an ending, the few minutes where the characters could bounce off of each other and interact were actually palatable enough for me to comment (if only to myself) that the next movie, where the turtles could just be turtles, might not suck as badly. So, here we go: Rocksteady and Bebop! Turtle Van! Technodrome! Casey Jones! The gang's all here! Provided their introduction doesn't consume the entire movie, there is hope that this one may not suck as hard as the first. And before you start complaining about how the movie did the same thing to your precious 80s cartoon that the 80s cartoon did to the source material: it's a movie about talking turtles who are mutants and also ninjas. You need to learn to relax.
